The Mondrian Residences in South Beach
The Mondrian is one of the most luxurious and contemporary mid-rise real estate properties in South Beach. Located on newly-fashionable West Avenue, Mondrian is a quiet enclave just minutes from the bustling center of South Beach, offering spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami. The visionary style of designer Marcel Wanders is apparent from the moment you pull into the porte-cochere: guests walk through a grand entryway appointed with custom-designed furniture, lighting and accent pieces, evoking Wanders’ design homage of “Sleeping Beauty’s Castle”. Upon entering the soaring lobby, the floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning views of Biscayne Bay. Immediately the eye is drawn to the masterpiece of the room–an iconic, signature “floating staircase.” Black and gold patterned furnishings and oversized brass bell shaped lights add a touch of whimsy and welcome guests to sit and socialize or enjoy the view.
Adopting a post-minimalist aesthetic, Wanders has designed open living areas to maximize ease, combining a sophisticated color palette of grays, golds, black and white with custom wall-coverings, rugs and furnishings. The TV, desk, iPod station and artwork of a classic hotel room are organized in a large “frame” over one wall. Spaces flow into one another to create an expansive feel, large windows, many with balconies, open to stunning views of the bay and ocean. Kitchen and dining areas feature walls covered in traditional Dutch Delft tile custom-made with Miami Beach motifs. Bedrooms, with king-size beds, open on to bathrooms with oversized sinks and showers tiled in a mosaic of clouds and sky. Wanders’ signature chandeliers, are hung through out including one that doubles as a showerhead.
